The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have spent the afternoon reminiscing about Frank Lampard’s time with Chelsea…
Undoubtedly a Chelsea legend, Frank Lampard won almost everything that was available to him at the club. The FA Cup, Champions League, Premier League – you name it, Frank Lampard won it.
Despite finishing his career in the MLS, via a stint with Man City, the Chelsea fans have never forgotten his contributions – with the Englishman arguably Chelsea’s best ever player.
However, one question mark has always been over Lampard’s head – was he better than Steven Gerrard?
Liverpool and Chelsea fans have always backed their man to the hilt, and whilst both players may have now retired – the competition between the pair has yet to slow down.
In fact, both sets of fans have reignited the debate on Twitter – and judging by early responses to the news, there can only be one winner…
Lampard was the best midfielder in the bpl at his peak #lampard

Lampard – always good! Never quite better than Gerrard

Lampard retires from football, a legend of the game who surpassed Gerrard in every single way.

Will always prefer Lampard over Gerrard any day

It is a pretty mixed bag of results, but Frank Lampard just about nudges it when it comes to the Twitter faithful.
The debate is, of course, an unnecessary one, with both players equally as important to their respective sides as one another – but that isn’t going to stop the fans on Twitter!
Chelsea and Liverpool fans – thoughts?
